Typing is a requirement throughout life! You will be asked to type for middle school, high school, college, and the majority of the careers that you may choose! It is important to learn how to type effeciently and quickly, especially for those long research papers you may have to complete.
I am leaving a link here that you can use at home to practice typing the proper way (by resting your fingers on the "home keys" and returning back to those keys as you type). This will not only help you type faster, but may even allow you to type without looking at the keyboard!! )
